As per the discussion going on at the official Orkut help forum, the worm seems to be posting scraps with the text “Bom Sabado” and adding affected users to new Orkut groups. Similar XSS attacks have targeted Orkut users in the past too. Experts have advised users to avoid logging on to Orkut till Orkut engineers fix the security hole and not to click on any suspicious links. Orkut had just last month announced new updates to the website.
